In the rest of the paper we focus on a case study from the SANREM study site in Lantapan, Bukidnon. We first provide a brief survey of major macroeconomic and policy trends in the Philippines and their possible effects on resource use decisions in an upland watershed like Lantapan. While we have information about macroeconomic and economy-wide phenomena, and about upland farmers' decision-making processes, we know little about the nature and strength of market links between the two. Accordingly, we then use econometric analysis to examine linkages between national and farm-gate prices on the basis of data collected in Lantapan over the period 1994-1999.
